    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was trained throughly. i was trained on the walkie stacker and the wave machine. Mangers were nice for the most part of my employment

    Cons

    Too much work in terms of useless things like moving around alot of products. They really know how to waste your time but I got paid for it so I dont care

    Advice to Management

    Create a more friendly environment and try to make the employees feel at home. Managemnet should help us not just do thier job.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    awesome place to learn and build current social skills. great employees. they play games when store is closed to keep moral up if it was a slow day, games played in the morning as well to boost employees mood in the early mornings.

    Cons

    hard to pick up shifts when store isn't busy, lots of shift cut or layoffs when the store is in a slump. deal with some really stupid customers or stubborn ones who are just there to bother employees

    Advice to Management

    don't be so sales aggressive. employees know they need to sell geek squad attachments but sometime it is hard even with help.
